Building Brisbane’s next ‘green bridge’ has been contracted to two local firms and is set to start soon.
The Green Bridges Program, led by Brisbane City Council, aims to improve active transport links across Brisbane's riverways and into the city.
The green bridges are being built in preparation for the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Two firms, Georgiou Group and Brady Marine & Civil, have nabbed the contract to build the bridge, with construction expected to start in the middle of 2022.
The Breakfast Creek Green Bridge will provide a safe and accessible walking and bike riding link between the Lores Bonney Riverwalk and the inner city.
The final design includes (among other features):
- an 80m arch bridge across Breakfast Creek
- dedicated pathways for walkers and riders
- pause points at the southern and northern bridge approaches, for punters to enjoy the scenery
- new signage, lighting rest areas and drinking fountains
The news comes as new designs for the Sydney Harbour Bridge cycleways were also unveiled.
The Breakfast Creek Green Bridge is expected to open in early 2024.
